Job description:

The source is a short book on design history and culture. It's already published in Russian and I want to bring it to Amazon for international readers. The text contains alot of names and terminology BUT it will be provided with all that stuff in English already.

I'm looking for more or less journal style (Tom Wolfe comes to mind), but the source is rather heavy on long sentences so the text should be edited a little.

Sample text: Translating this text is NOT required
Буржуазия уже начала массово переселяться в новёхонькие дома, оформленные и обставленные либо в стиле Морриса, либо в стиле Art Nouveau (все интерьеры до этого, за исключением бидермайера, были ужасны – слишком много предметов, мало воздуха, ещё меньше света). Это жильё по тогдашним меркам было просто потрясающее. В нём не дуло и не тянуло сыростью от стен (прочитать о жалобах аристократии на некомфортабельность аристократических жилищ можно хотя бы у Вудхауса).
